find the rotation of a geometric object about an axis
rotation(Q, P, g, l)
the name of the object to be created
the angle of rotation
the axis of rotation
In rotation about an axis, each point P of the set S of all points of unextended space is carried into a point P1 of S by rotating P about a fixed line in space through a given angle.
The fixed line is called the axis of rotation.
For a detailed description of the object created Q, use the routine detail (i.e., detail(Q))
The command with(geom3d,rotation) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
Define a stellated icosahedron
Rotate ico1 about the z-axis
